A signal handler has been added, which, when a program crashes, erases the cache file of the current book - to protect it from re-dropping when the book is reopened.
Including validation of the book mode cache file when you open (check checksum blocks). It must be protected from falling corrupted cache files. The rediscovery of the book may be slower than before (to be noticeable on large books luchge all measured on the team "to switch to the previous book" to jump between the two books). Anybody see the difference? Interesting test results. Much of the fall is due to the corrupted cache files. If braking is small - maybe we should leave this option.
Full check of the cache file is made disconnected - to disable it, add the line crengine.cache.validation.enabled = 0 to SD / .cr3 / cr3.ini
Fixed style<code>in epub.
Correction of the Polish translation

I did not find Russian? When turning the phone to a horizontal position, it took off and does not load any more?

Rep: (60)

There is no Russian really yet - I will correct the description
Departure when turning the device into a portrait - the author knows about this bug, will work on it

The program is only a week, so for now we are testing

Rep: (9)
I hope the program will develop. I have been using it on BB for many years.

Rep: (202)
Reinstalled, now does not flip through the pages? I would like to see the development of this program. She can read fb2 and txt. While I have two readers for different formats, everything in one is much more convenient. Will wait!

Rep: (183)
SmartQ v5, everything seems to be normal, the reader has potential, only there are bookmarks, there is an item with them in the menu, and how can they be done? o_o

Rep: (9)
I started on my device, scanned the map and it was all over. The book does not see.

Rep: (4)
Works, but not stable. I tried FB2 and THT, the books open, then no.

Rep: (202)

Is it like numbers?

Rep: (4)
On Motorola, Milestone was launched, about 30 seconds scanned something (there was a progress bar), reached 50% and wrote that the scan was not completed successfully. Then a black screen and silence. But did not fall.
Getting started is great. And then I, as a big fan, read about 6,000 books on a card and the fbreader is simply dying. I have to go out in every way :)
I wish every success to the project!

... the difference of the program is the presence of hyphens of the Russian text

In FBReaderJ it is.
The main value and difference of the program (expected) is viewing not only fb2, but txt, rtf, epub, chm, and so on.

I have exactly the same.

Rep: (60)

Try to install an earlier version from the header.
There are fewer settings, but the version is more stable.

Rep: (9)
Put the previous version. She started scanning and scanned for an hour to no avail. The runner did not move even a millimeter. Let's wait for the next versions.

Rep: (90)
I did not find something in the market ... Is it not there yet? Or looking somehow wrong?

This is a test version.

Rep: (4)
question to the author - What does it scan at the start? Maybe this is the reason for incorrect work?

I have for example a 32 Gb card. Lots of folders. The books folder, which contains books, weighs about 2 GB and contains approximately 6000 files.
There is a lot of music and other junk on the card. If you scan the entire structure, it is very long.

Very interesting what is being scanned.

[offtopic] The Quote button does not work on the forum [/ offtopic]

At the start, all the directories of the SD card are scanned, .txt, .fb2, .fb2.zip, ... and other supported files are searched.
All found files are added to the book database (if they are not there).
Then (progress 50..100%) for FB2 files not found in the database, the author / title / series is parsed, recorded in the database.

For the first time, you can see the map for a long time.
Re-scanning should work quickly (viewing the list of files in all directories of the SD card, searching the database).
